Growing up in a pre-iPad world, the used book store was one of my favorite places to be. There’s something special about books… they’ve been conveying information and teaching the world for close to 2000 years now (no batteries needed!). With the advent of the iPad and other electronic e-readers it seems like books are slowly going out of style. However, thanks to companies like ReAuthored the spirit of used books can live on again! If you want an iPad cover that looks like a book, why settle for anything less than the real thing! Check out our ReAuthored iPad 3 Case review inside…
ReAuthored is a boutique home grown company run by two aspiring case makers seeking to bring a little joy into the world. One crazy idea, an intense love of books, and an unswerving determination to make something unique has resulted in ReAuthored. One of the coolest little companies we’ve come across in a long time! JC and Maha and their little son run the business and they have been featured everywhere from Gizmodo to Better Home and Gardens 2011 gift guide. To them, though, the biggest achievement has been the hundreds of emails they’ve received from customers who absolutely love their cases.
You know in the movies when the spies hide all their valuables inside a hollowed out book? You know how you always wanted to make one of those yourself (but never did)? Well ReAuthored has taken this method and turned it into an art form with their iPad Book Case!
Take one hardbound book (ours is a book titled ‘Timelines of World History’), glue the pages together, hollow out the center, line it with a soft luxurious material, insert one iPad 3, and voila! You’ve got yourself a one-of-a-kind iPad 3 Case!
On the outside our ReAuthored case is covered soft leather-like material that feels good and looks great. The case feels good and sturdy in the hands, like a hard back book should. It is secured closed with a nice thick elastic strap. On the inside the iPad is held in place with two corner straps and it works pretty well. There’s even a special pull-tab to help you remove your iPad easily.
Perhaps the coolest feature of these iPad cases is the fact that it is the perfect disguise for your precious tablet. You will feel like a spy pulling this book off your shelf and using the iPad within. There are few things more durable than a hard back book, and your iPad will be safe and sound inside. It will be protected from impacts, drops, kicks, and toddlers dancing on it, and will all but disappear on a bookshelf!
You can choose from 7 different interior and exterior colors, or you can choose to keep the book uncovered and maintain the perfect disguise.
No books are harmed in the making of these cases! Or rather, no books in circulation are harmed. Each book is hand-selected for quality, size, weight, and aesthetic. The heros at ReAuthored save the book from the shredders or the trash pile and give it a new chance at a wonderful life covering and protecting an iPad.
While most books are chosen entirely at random from their high quality collection, if you ask them nicely they’ll even go the extra mile for you and help find that perfect book to fir you or the lucky person you are gifting it to!
Maybe we have a soft spot for boutique companies filled with heart, maybe we watched too much Inspector Gadget as kids (remember Penny’s special power book!!), or maybe it’s the fact that these iPad cases are really really cool… but whatever it is the ReAuthored iPad 3 Case is awesome and we give it 5 stars!
